Secret Service Agent Mugged During Biden’s Visit

( – Even agents of the Secret Service have apparently not been spared by thieves after one of the agency’s members was robbed at gunpoint during President Joe Biden’s visit to California.

The Secret Service employee was reportedly returning after a completing a special assignment at work when he was accosted by armed robbers, who managed to get away with the employee’s bag and other belongings. Police found many of the items scattered around and near the scene of the crime, ostensibly discarded in an attempt to flee, as the employee was able to discharge his weapon. It is unknown, however, if the suspect was hit or sustained any injuries. The employee did not sustain any injuries, according to Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesperson for the USSS.

The suspects escaped in a 2004-2006 silver Infiniti FX35. They are also still at large as of press time.

Sources say that the agent was only operating as a part of the support group during the president’s visit to California and was not part of the security detail for the president. The incident happened in Tustin, California, and the employee’s name was not disclosed to the press. The Secret Service said that a criminal investigation into the attack is underway. Police have also said that there is no known threat to the public.

One the other hand, Biden’s fundraising foray into the glitzy Los Angeles and Hollywood crowd was a huge success, with the campaign managing to raise more than $30 million. The event, which was hosted by late night talk show host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel, was attended by Hollywood elite such as George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Barbara Streisand, Jack Black, Jason Bateman, and others. Former president Barack Obama also attended the event.

This is not the first time Secret Service agents have discharged a weapon against robbers – last year, an agent assigned to guard Naomi Biden, the president’s granddaughter, fired at robbers who were allegedly attempting to break into a government vehicle in Washington, D.C.
